Joey Hagan, AIA, Principal
After attending school at Tulane, Joey Hagan worked at a variety of firms, plying his trade. He was hired by David Schuermann for an Intern Architect position at Bologna & Associates. In later years, David ended up renting Joey office space when he went out on his own. The two formed a friendship and business relationship that led to the creation of Architecture, Incorporated in 1994.
As one of Architecture, Incorporated's two principals, Joey's proud to have kept the company very involved with the American Institute of Architects (AIA). He's served as AIA president of the Memphis chapter and is currently the AIA president for the state of Tennessee. Not that that's enough for Joey. He's also been very involved with NCARB, the Memphis Landmarks Commission, and a number of other associations over the years. Joey currently serves on the board of directors of Memphis Heritage and Memphis Kiwanis Club.
